Coconut Cilantro Rice

This rice is so delicious that I’ve made it twice this week!  I’m the only person in our household that likes coconut, yet everyone loved this!  We had it earlier in the week with a delicious and very simple slow-cooker chicken.  Because I wasn’t sure how it would go over I only made half the recipe then.  However, when Wes wanted me to make cubed steak and gravy with rice over the weekend I decided to make it again, only this time I made the full recipe.


Coconut Cilantro Rice
  • 2 c. coconut milk
  • 3 c. water
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1½ tsp. sugar
  • 2 c. Basmati rice
  • 6 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Combine coconut milk, water, salt and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer undisturbed until liquid is absorbed (about 20 - 25 minutes).
  2. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork. Add chopped cilantro and stir. Serve warm.
